Washington State Governor-elect Jay Inslee hugs outreach director Unjin Lee, the first hire made by his campaign, during a celebration on Friday, Nov. 9, 2012 at the Inslee campaign headquarters in Seattle. Inslee secured victory Friday in Washington’s race for governor, triumphing over his Republican rival after a grueling campaign that drew more than $40 million in spending. GOP candidate Rob McKenna conceded defeat Friday night after late ballot returns failed to turn in his favor as the campaign had hoped.
